I’ve been working on somewhat more complicated segmented projects. This vase is made of walnut and sycamore with a rosewood rim and is comprised of a total of 213 pieces (16 12-segment rings, 2 20-segment rings, and a solid base). Finished size is 11” tall and 7 3/4” wide at the largest diameter. It is finished with three coats of Liberon oil and a topcoat of Renaissance Wax.
As any of you who have dome segmented projects know, they take a long time to cut, fit, glue, sand and turn, but when they work out they are really something to be proud of. I’m pretty happy with this one and look forward to making more.
-- Once in awhile I make something really great. Most days I just make sawdust.
